A 1992 "directive" may be "enticing" service members to violate their Oaths - putting themselves and others at risk of what happened at Fort Hood, the Naval Yard, Chattanooga, and 18 other places in the last 19 years.

Post removed. Link drop.

Rule 5 "Please add content to your posts. When posting about a news story or gun porn please include some of your own commentary. GaG should not be a link dump but a place of discussion."
http://gunsacrossgoogle.com/CommunityRules.html

+Joe Levi​, when posting and sharing to this community, you have to give is some original commentary with what you're sharing. Just repeating the first line of the article is not sufficient. Tell us your thoughts of the article, why you thought it important to share, and why we should check it out. If you're the author, then sum up the article for us or give us your thoughts on writing the article. We want to encourage discussion here in the community, and link drops generally don't do that. Feel free to repost with some of your original commentary attached.

Also, you shared this post and link verbatim across a few communities. Doing so causes this share to be community spamming as well per the community rules.
Rule 7 "No spamming, advertising, or contests."

I'm guessing that wasn't your intention. If your intro, as mentioned above, is original for this community, it will usually not fall under Rule 7.

Introduction

Joe Levi is a multi-dimensional, cross-discipline problem solver with the ability to think outside the box but within reality.

Joe was hired by Lifetime Products in November of 2005 to fill the position of Web Application Developer left vacant by their previous Web Developer.

In the years since Joe began his employment with Lifetime Products he has been instrumental in realizing several projects and keeps existing sites and solutions up-to-date and running smoothly.

Joe previously worked for BOWG Advertising as their interactive Technology Director developing projects for clients such as 3M HIS, Novell, 3COM, and Sundance Resort. He performed contract work for a local dot com, building their first B2C e-commerce shopping cart solution. He even worked for a local pseudo-celebrity where he wore many hats (including Sharepoint Developer and various technical and management positions).

Before it was discontinued by Verisign, Joe was a Web of Trust Notary, endorsed by Thawte (a Verisign company), and experienced with x.590 Digital Signature Certificates. Joe believes in the widespread use of PKI Encryption technologies and methodologies as potentially being the "magic bullet" in eliminating online fraud, identity theft, and even casual snooping.

Give Joe a pair of headphones and a can of anything "cold and caffeinated" and he can code for hours on end. He can work efficiently as a solo developer and is also at-home when working as part of a development team.

When asked, Joe tells people that it's not really that he knows all that much, rather that he's just really good at figuring things out.

Although Joe can work inside the constraints and scope of a project, he has a hard time "thinking inside the box" and can often see the larger picture and offer ideas, thoughts, or "what-if" scenarios that can help "future-proof" a given project to extend the value and business-returns.

If what you want isn't in stock: stay away. Don't have them order anything. I ordered a watch band, was told it would be in in about a week. After a week I called asking on the status: not in yet, give it a couple more days. I waited another week and called in again: not in yet, give it a couple more days. After three weeks, still no call from the store, so I stopped by. After 15 minutes: it's not in yet... Fine, then give me a refund. I waited again. When they tried to refund my money I was asked to see my ID before they would refund my money. Instead of a refund, they ended up charging me again... Glad I caught that and refused to sign the receipt. They called someone to find out how to work the machine... I waited some more. Finally, after half-an-hour in their store I got a refund for the mistaken charge. After another couple minutes I finally got my refund for the original purchase. I went out of my way to do business at a local store instead of going online. I even settled on a similar product -- not the one I wanted. I knew ordering from the store would take a "a week" -- longer than what it would have taken for my Internet order to come through, but I did it anyway. Instead, after three weeks, they still have no idea when the item will come in -- and they don't seem to care. Their response was "oh well" -- not "I'm sorry, or we'll order it again with overnight delivery to your house" or "what can we do to make this right?" Just "oh well". The name of the store is fitting. Time's Ticking... I'll never get my wasted time back -- and when I need any watch service, parts, or anything this store could have provided, I'll gladly go elsewhere. I'd recommend you do the same.
